Record-breaking fundraising total for Harrogate motor show

The Harrogate Car Enthusiasts Motor Show.

The Harrogate Car Enthusiasts Motor Show achieved a record-breaking fundraising total on its return earlier this month.

The show was back at Harrogate Rugby Club on Rudding Lane on Saturday 11th May, fundraising for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The motor show is for anything motoring related, whether it’s cars, vans, lorries, motorbikes, scooters, steam engines or tractors. 

And this year’s final fundraising total is £1,483.52 - the most the one-day event has ever raised in its history.

This year's success takes the total money raised by the annual event to £6,700.

Organiser Barry Busby said:

“Thank you so much to everyone that helped and donated. 

“I’m absolutely buzzing for that amount to have been raised. Well done to everyone involved!”

As a special treat for this year’s visitors, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance landed at the rugby club to show their support.

Between 300-400 vehicles attended the free event, including minibuses, steam engines and tractors. 

A spokesperson for Yorkshire Air Ambulance said:

"Thank you so much for all your hard work and support. It was a great day and well done to all."
